The result is a diffused structure whose architectural language is inspired by the musical tradition rooted in the city. The building consists of nine small circular music laboratories, linked by a “piazza” that acts as a distribution space and becomes a place for sharing and dialogue among young musicians. This central area is also intended for ensemble music and small rehearsals.
